their needs and comfort. for comfort and safe environment in which to wait for the restoration of service. thea passengers have no other way to get to their homes on treasure island because it was in lock down. so, there was not an alternative to muni. they couldn't go home. and because it was so early in the morning or late at night depending on how you look at it, they had nowhere to go. so, our employees provided food, shelter, and made sure that they had access to the rest rooms at the temporary terminal at transbay. operator fam was similarly stranded in service on treasure island all night after spending all night on treasure island, once it was reopened in the morning, he returned to the transbay terminal to take the waiting passengers back to treasure island. so, we want to thank all of you. i know that was an extraordinary night and this was -- called for kind of above and beyond anything you learned. an operator or supervisor school. so, want to thank you for the great, excellent customer service, the great teamwork and cooperation with other agencies * in what was a very diffi
of a program and the environment? >> spend my right honorable friend speaks very knowledgeably about this but these are going to be extremely difficult negotiations, and, obviously, our aim as i said this was a significant cut that is spoken about. i think the point he makes about agriculture is important. particularly about the flexibility that we require to make sure things like the rural develop a program can continue to succeed. >> we know the prime minister has met lots of millionaires, but has he ever met anyone who will lose their home because of his bedroom tax? >> i hold constituency hearings and i listened all the cases that lead of the opposition has today. i have are a of price norse -- in my constituents aren't many families living in my constituency. but what they said to me as they want a government that is on the side people who work hard and do the right thing. and they support the fact that we are capping welfare, we're getting on top of immigration, cleaning up the mess left by her party. >> thank you, mr. speaker. today is the united nations international day on z
to stormwater infrastructure to transport water away from the urban environment. one approach was to carry waste and stormwater through the same pipe. this combined system was less expensive than building two individual pipe networks. and stormwater was seen as a way to flush out the sewers. through the 19th century, the combined system was considered state-of-the-art throughout the world, and is still in use in many cities today. but cities constructed these systems before treatment was the standard. and even today's largest treatment plant doesn't have the capacity to treat the sudden volumes of water rushing through a combined system during rain. the plant is overloaded, and the excess rainwater, mixed with untreated raw sewage, is diverted straight into local waterways, creating a combined sewer overflow, or cso. there are over 700 communities in the united states with combined sewer systems. the other approach was to separate wastewater from stormwater, using two pipe networks. this separate system simply carries the stormwater away from the city. but even separate systems pollute the water
to reduce the infrastructure's impact upon the environment. on the front lines of protecting the beaches, are the crews that clean out the stormwater system. man: this big vactor truck works on the same principle as your vacuum cleaner in your house, only this thing sucks up the whole house. some of the storm drains collect a lot of trash. i started cleaning drains in '93. they were horrible because they hadn't been maintained so much. now this is a priority. you have trash, animal waste, and it ends up on our beaches. that is a health risk. that is one of the main reasons why we have to close the beaches after heavy rain. narrator: but even when it's not raining, water still enters the stormwater system, carrying pollutants. here on the west coast, a lot of our storm drain systems are separate from the sanitary sewer system, so if you dump something in the storm drain, it goes right to the ocean untreated. alamillo: we haven't had a major rainstorm in the last year or so yet there's a lot of water in this creek here. i would say 20% of it is natural and the other 80% is runoff. shapiro:
